When you complete your outfit with a cool accessory, it’s like icing on the cake. Street style stars totally get this, styling their outfits with must-have pieces — usually a designer bag — all throughout fashion month. They aren’t afraid to bring runway trends to the streets, and you shouldn’t be either. To get you started, we narrowed down the most wearable accessory trends and suggested exactly how to wear them. Check below for some inspiration.
The corset is officially one of the pieces you need for 2017. You can wear it over a jacket, cinched around a blouse, or with a skirt — the possibilities are endless.
You’ll know it’s a bracelet bag when you spot a giant, circular ring as the handle. While the Chloé Nile bag is easily one of the more recognizable options, many brands have followed suit with their own versions.
They will remind you of fanny packs for sure, but these new bags are more stylish than their ’80s counterparts. With updated designs and shapes, the only similarity between the old and new is that you wear them at waist level. The next time you get tired of slinging straps across your shoulders, just hitch your bag down low.
While Gucci’s Princeton mules dominated previous fashion weeks, new variations such as velvet and embroidered designs have since popped up. Instead of the ballet flat, try one of the new mule options ahead.
Embellished Bag Straps
It’s time to have a little fun with your accessories! Fendi has the right idea by creating pretty interchangeable straps, so your customized bag feels new with every wear. It’s no wonder the street style crew quickly adopted this look.
Louis Vuitton’s mini backpack was a popular choice for the Fashion Week crowd, but we spotted other variations, too. From logo-emblazoned pieces to crochet designs, mini backpacks have been revived just in time for music festival season.
What’s a better way to show off your personality than with DIY customizations? Iron on a patch or two to your favorite designer bag, which will instantly make your purse one of a kind. Alternatively, there are plenty of bags that come prefixed with these quirky touches.
Space is no longer an issue when you’re carrying two bags. The trend, which was spotted on the runway, was quickly replicated on the streets. Our suggestion on how to wear it? Attach a small clutch to your bag to achieve the layering effect.
